I would not really recommend this tour. The on-line booking system was not working. I reserved by email and they gave me a pick-up time from the hotel. On the afternoon before the tour, they emailed again to say it would be 30 mins earlier. But the tour bus was actually 40 mins late in picking me up. The tour... More

It was a good introduction to the city but there were a few negatives. We were taken to the Boca Juniors stadium and asked if we were interested in a tour of the stadium. No one was interested but we then had to spend some time hanging around there. At one point a young man got on the minibus and... More

When you are reading these reviews and choosing a tour, make sure the reviews you are considering match the tour you are looking at We chose to do Cultour "City Tour" because we wanted a great tour of the...

Cultour was great. As a guided tour it was different form what we have today, the guide talks about most of the city's past and explains some monuments, explains why some aspects in the present are the way they are, we got to know a little bit of argentina's history, very far from those bus tours that only shows how...

My hostel offered us a 'free' walking tour, so I signed up. It turned out to be free for an hour, after which we were given the option of going for another couple of hours. I thought this was slightly deceptive on someone's part, perhaps the hostel's or perhaps the tour company's. At the end of my free hour, however,... More

Is this the same company?? We did the “City Bus Tour” and found it to be a waste ($25 USD). At the very least, it is not geared for English speakers. While the guide would be going on in Spanish, obviously providing very detailed explanations, she would only give a one sentence explanation in broken English, usually after we passed... More

This free city tour takes you around the main historic monuments in Plaza Mayo after a brilliant introduction video. Knowledgeable and enthusiastic students answer all your questions and excellently convey Argentina's recent history to you. After the free tour, an optional tour to three very interesting places is offered, and highly recommended to go in more detail on all the... More

I went on the historical tour with Ignacio and Nicolas. They provided fantastic information about the city of Buenos Aires, were really friendly, and very welcoming. Cultour is a great company I would definitely recommend them!

I had got to BA and our tour guide from a trip in Brazil told me to do BA Free Tours. A total waste of my time - annoying girl screaming "Do you LOOOOVVVVE Buenos AAAAAirrrrressss?" No culture or history - just pure rah rah rah! The next day, I reluctantly tried Cultour Tours. Wonderful! They split the group into... More

This was a fantastic way to learn about Argentina's modern history and politics and develop an understanding of modern day Argentina. Can not recommend it highly enough!
